"Woke" Lunacy Makes Michigan Democrats'
Pro-Abortion Amendment A Self-Inflicted Wound
Likely due to being unable to say "woman", the amendment's
authors use language sure to
destroy support, if loudly pointed out by the rest of us.
MUCH IS BEING MADE IN MICHIGAN this summer of the effort by
pro-abortion interests-- allies of Democrat officeholders and wannabes,
in particular Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson-- to
pass by popular referendum an amendment to the Michigan
Constitution meant to enshrine a "right" to abortion therein.
The proposal faces a
minor speedbump at the moment due to numerous typos in
petition text, over which the state
Canvassing Board failed to approve it for
the November ballot on a 2-2 partisan
split, but that won't last. The issue will now go to the
Michigan Supreme Court, which was switched
from majority "conservative" to majority
"progressive" as one of the alleged outcomes
compromised 2020 election, and it can be expected
that the court will overrule the Canvassing
Board and allow the proposal to go forward.
The amendment is playing a big
role in statewide politics because Democrats
are heavily relying on the abortion issue to
energize their base and pro-abortion
independents and make a difference in an
election otherwise likely to be very hard on
them. These are, after all, the folks who (illegally)
subjected Michigan to double-digit
unemployment and the permanent closure of
huge numbers of businesses during 2020-2021,
while spending much of that time
violent urban riots and
police in an effort to menace political
opponents prior to committing
election-rigging on their behalf and that of
national Democrat candidates.
But as it turns out, the
"abortion rights" amendment (formally
labeled the "Right to Reproductive Freedom"
amendment) has a fat, juicy fly in its
ointment. If publicized promptly and
thoroughly through the distribution of
this article, this defect will make the issue backfire on
its supporters and political beneficiaries
in a very big way.
You see, the language of the
amendment empowers the fathers involved to
compel the mothers to have abortions whether
they want to or not, or to prohibit them,
even while empowering the mothers involved
to also make these choices.
The amendment, in short, sets
up an impossible legal conflict, making it
useless for pro-abortion interests, while
dramatically highlighting one of the
seldom-recognized great evils inherent in
the "abortion rights" concept. Let me show
HERE IS THE RELEVANT TEXT of
the "Right to Reproductive Freedom"
Article 1, Section
28 Right to Reproductive Freedom
(1) Every individual has a
fundamental right to reproductive freedom,
which entails the right to make and
effectuate decisions about all matters
relating to pregnancy, including but not
limited to prenatal care, childbirth,
postpartum care, contraception,
sterilization, abortion care, miscarriage
management, and infertility care. An
individual's right to reproductive freedom
shall not be denied, burdened, nor infringed
upon unless justified by a compelling state
interest achieved by the least restrictive
means. Notwithstanding the above, the state
may regulate the provision of abortion care
after fetal viability, provided that in no
circumstance shall the state prohibit an
abortion that, in the professional judgment
of an attending health care professional, is
medically indicated to protect the life or
physical or mental health of the pregnant
(2) The state shall not
discriminate in the protection or
enforcement of this fundamental right.
(There are three further sections
the amendment which prohibit retaliation
by the state against anyone for acting under
the foregoing provisions, define a
"compelling" state interest and "fetal
and make the section self-executing and
severable, respectively. None of them save
the amendment from the problem I'm pointing
Whether due to an inability to
say the word "woman" in light of recently
embraced "trans-gender" insanity or for
other less amusingly ironic reasons, the amendment confers its
powers on "every individual". At the same
time, it prohibits discrimination in its
application, which under Michigan law, means
discrimination on the basis of sex.
Taken together, "every
individual" and "no discrimination" mean
that under this Constitutional amendment the
fathers involved in any pregnancy are fully
as empowered to "make and effectuate
decisions about all matters relating to
[that] pregnancy, including, but not limited
to prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum
care, contraception, sterilization, abortion
care, miscarriage management, and
infertility care" as are the women they have
Making and effectuating
decisions about "abortion care" (sic)
plainly encompasses decisions about whether
to abort a pregnancy or to not abort a
pregnancy (and most of the other specified
powers similarly confer authority over
decisions to abandon or reject a pregnancy
or to preserve and protect it), and as said,
fathers plainly acquire these powers under
NEEDLESS TO SAY, those behind
this amendment-- and those hoping to ride
its coattails to more promising political
outcomes in November than they are likely to
face without it-- will scream and shout that
"Of course" the amendment isn't meant to
empower fathers to have a say-- and an equal
and possibly paralyzing say-- in the
disposition of babies in whose production
they have participated. Too bad.
That's what the amendment says:
Fathers can no more properly be forced to
reproduce, or prevented from reproducing,
than can mothers (and here we leave aside
for the sake of simplicity the fact that
actually, both have already reproduced at
the point at which abortion becomes an
Since fathers should never have
been precluded from legal standing to
prevent the mothers of their children from
murdering those children, that aspect of
this idiotic and ill-meant amendment is a
In practice, although the
entire amendment will necessarily fail
(either fail to be passed, should enough
this article, or fail in
the courts as incomprehensible and
unenforceable), highlighting the grotesque
discrimination against men under existing
pro-abortion regimes is an even more robust
positive, for which we owe a wry thanks
to the evil creatures responsible for this

THIS VIDEO PROJECTS THE PROGRESS of a nuclear exchange between Russia and
the United States. It's frightening, as it should
be, as well as sobering and instructive. My only
criticisms are, first of all, that it fails to
account for the imbalance that will now be present
in any such exchange due to
the new Russian
Secondly, the video fails to account
for China's contribution to the exchange against the
US, which is a virtual certainty. China knows that
if Russia goes, and the US survives, it goes soon
after. So, that will not be allowed to happen.

Fear and Loathing in
The Biden Administration’s
Crimes Against Humanity
by Philip Giraldi (held over
from the March 7, 2022 edition)
One can frequently
disagree with government policies without
necessarily regarding them with disgust, but
the Joe Biden Administration has turned that
corner, first with its senseless promotion
of a new Cold War that could turn hot with
Russia and, more recently, with its actions
undertaken to undermine and punish
Afghanistan. The fact that the White House
wraps itself in the sanctimonious,
self-righteous twaddle that is so much the
hallmark of the political left is bad
enough, but when the government goes out of
its way to harm and even kill people around
the world in pursuit of an elusive global
dominance it is time for the American people
to rise up and say “Stop!”
As a former CIA
operations officer, I departed government
service in 2002 in part due to the impending
invasion of Iraq, which I knew was
completely unjustified by the web of largely
fabricated information that was flowing out
of the Pentagon to justify the attack. In
the years since I have been appalled by the
Obama era attacks on Syria and Libya as well
as by the assassinations and cruise missile
strikes carried out under Donald Trump. But
all of that was a Sunday in the park
compared to the hideous nonsense being
pursued by Biden and his crew of reprobates.
Trifling with the use of force as part of
negotiations intended to go nowhere over
Ukraine could well by misstep, false flag or
even design escalate into nuclear war ending
much of the life on this planet as we know
it, and we are now also witnessing the cold,
calculated slaughter of possibly hundreds of
thousands of civilians just because we have
the tools at hand and believe that we can
get away with it. What we are seeing unfold
right in front of us goes beyond appalling
and it is time to demand a change of course
on the part of a runaway federal government
that is drunk on its own self-assumed
unbridled right to exercise total executive
authority over vital issues of war and
I am most
particularly shocked and dismayed over what
the Biden Administration did to Afghanistan
on February 11th, which is unambiguously a
crime against humanity. On that day the
President of the United States Joe Biden,
still smarting from the botched departure
from Afghanistan and low approval ratings,
issued an executive order invoking emergency
powers stipulating that the $7 billion in
Afghan government money being held and
frozen in the Federal Reserve Bank of New
York would be retained by the US and divided
Half of the $7
billion would be placed in a US government
administered trust fund. The money would in
theory go to fund humanitarian relief in
Afghanistan to be carried out by agencies
unidentified but presumed to be acting in
coordination with the barracudas at the
Treasury Department while the other half
would go to benefit the victims of 9/11.
This money is not just “frozen assets,” it
is the entire reserve of the Afghan central
bank, and its appropriation by the US will
destroy whatever remains of the formal
Afghan economy, making Afghanistan entirely
reliant on small rations of foreign aid that
come through channels unconnected with the
The other half of
the story is that Afghanistan had nothing to
do with 9/11 but instead became a victim of
the US lust for revenge. After 9/11, the
Taliban government offered to turn over
Osama bin Laden to the United States if
Washington were able to provide evidence
that he was somehow involved in the attacks
in New York and Virginia. The George W. Bush
Administration was unable to do so, but
chose to invade instead.
"Those who can make you believe
absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

POINTS, well-informed and on the right side
of the issue. Also as usual-- of Giraldi and
most every other pundit properly awake to
the corruption in Washington and the peril
it represents to us all if left unchecked--
though expressly declaring, "...it is time
for the American people to rise up and say
“Stop!”," Giraldi offers no prescription for
how this "stopping" is to be done.
Every pundit ringing the alarm
bell-- and they are now legion-- seems to
imagine that merely encouraging a widespread
discontent will somehow prompt a spontaneous
(and beneficial) revolution. But time has
proven this to be hoped in vain.
Just knowing the pot is growing
warmer never prompts the frog to jump out,
and especially when (if I might be forgiven
for expanding the metaphor) the cooks have
grown expert at tossing juicy flies into the
water as needed to distract or take the edge
off any awakening to the imminence of the
Further, a substantial portion
of any society will NEVER "rise up"-- some
because they feel aligned with the cooks for
whatever reason, and some because they just
don't have that kind of character.
EVERYONE WILL ACT to minimize the
amount they contribute to the growth and
maintenance of the Leviathan state which
is-- either directly, or through the uses to
which it is put-- the source of the peril of
which pundits like Giraldi warn. That's
universal human nature at work, and it
marshals enormous energy, creativity and
persistence on its behalf.
Happily, and unlike nearly
every other solution to an overgrown state
that might be dreamed up or advocated, the
Founders and Framers-- who enjoyed a
uniquely complete understanding of both the
hazards against which they were providing
and the nature of the state in which any
solution must operate-- hardwired into the
taxing provisions of the federal
Constitution the means by which individual
self-interest can be harnessed to suppress
Leviathan's growth (or shrink it back down
to safer dimensions).
For decades now, since the
1950s, in fact, a concerted effort to
obscure that hardwired solution has been
underway. For most of those decades the
corrupt effort was an unmitigated success.
But in 2003 the concealment scheme was
revealed along with the state-restraining
solution it was meant to neutralize.
We CAN effectively rise up and
say “Stop!”. Tens of thousands have been
doing so for many years now, and tens of
millions-- enough to really put on the
brakes before we all go over the cliff
edge-- can be brought to join in simply by
informing them how the law provides for
their attention to their own self-interest,
despite strenuous efforts by
Leviathan-beneficiaries over the decades to
pretend that it does not, and to convince
the American people of this enervating
ALL THAT THE GOOD AMONG US NEED
DO is share
this simple two-page document in the
most vigorous and diligent way possible,
with whatever creative words can be dreamed
up to accompany it and induce the recipient
to open it and read it through.
It's really that simple.
How long it will take before
that effort really pays off is uncertain. It
might be a while.
Or... maybe not.
After all, once some energetic
and creative lovers of the republic and the
rule of law see to it that all the Philip
Giraldis and the Joe Rogans and the Matt
Walshs and the Glenn Greenwalds and the Lew
that simple two-page document and begin
sharing it in turn, we'll see a groundswell
become a tidal wave, virtually overnight.
Leviathan-- and all it evils-- will stop

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country
to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored
hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood
and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor
at that kind of work.
When I have asked all of you for what I
firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball
downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice
and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple
testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you
but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking
from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people
answer my call.
I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to
be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive
or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and
toward research, analysis and educational presentations
that will benefit everyone already in this community.
I need time to do some suing, and to bring together
the resources and talent toward that end.
As said, it is my firm belief that your
testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make
big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing
I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying
to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching
my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age
in their careers had run into a wall common to all but
the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good,
and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard
work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with
a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to
risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging
back from seizing the main chance when it appeared,
and driving for the goal.
My solution was to post on the wall of
our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline,
the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if
you don't take a shot.
That's how it is here, too. If you don't
stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score
Here is what my kids live by now, in their
own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all
the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of
a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard,
or go home.
You, too. Go hard, or go home.
Send those videos.
Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories
to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading
the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words,
too. It IS a lot.
But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder
the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we
obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would
be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom
should not be highly rated.”
We each have our reasons, and our story.
It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with

"The day we see truth and do not speak

-Martin Luther King, Jr.
What does it for you?
Is it simply because no moral and upstanding
person has any choice when it comes to telling the truth
over his or her signature, whether on tax forms or anywhere
Is it recognition of the critical importance
of the rule of law, and the knowledge that if everybody
leaves its caretaking to someone else, it will soon
be lost to us completely?
Is it the money?
Maybe it's just simple respect for your
own rights as a human being, who is not and cannot be

Maybe it's just simple respect for your

of our own devising which otherwise is like a badly-raised
teenage boy given whiskey and car keys and let loose
on the road to wreak havoc?
Or is it, perhaps, a more acute anxiety
that if our bonfire of a state isn't damped, and quickly,
it'll soon burn down the house around us all?
What IS it that firms up your jaw and stiffens
It's time to take off the bushel and
share your light!
I would like you to think about what it
is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day,
if you like), and then send me your thoughts. I want
to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't
yet understand what this is all about.
In this day and age, the most effective
way for you to share your thinking for the benefit of
others is to video-record yourself talking about how
you feel, and explaining what inspires and motivates

Better, though, to just speak extemporaneously, after
spending a little time sorting out your thoughts and
getting down into your heart. Perhaps make it a video

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.
Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes,
and keep in mind that the purpose is
not to educate,
but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will
be one of many to be shared. If you need to go
longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long
or short I may edit if something strikes me as
wandering or off-key or unacceptable).
You needn't feel any obligation to be profound,
and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the
law, other than to say that you have read it and you
know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere,
and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience
want to have what you have, and to be where you are
in your heart.
Don't talk to ME, or to others in the
CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited
to the NON-CtC-educated
community, and at the same time, be mindful that
you're speaking to an audience that doesn't yet know
ANYTHING about the subject, and whose first reaction
is, "This must be illegal; this must be dangerous;
this is too good to be true." You want to pull that
audience right past such things, and straight to a
focus on truth, morality, and our American heritage
of liberty and the rule of law, but without getting
technical in any way.
Reassure as though you were
reassuring your children about something--
not condescending or preachy, but staying
out of the weeds. Speak of principles, not
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
Speak about rights. Speak about morality,
and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person
to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution.
Speak about everyone's duty
to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar
only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation
to respect yourself, and to look out for the current
and future well-being of your children and your fellow
citizens. Speak of
CtC, and what its information has done for your
understanding and resolve. Show the book.
If you have had victories, describe them.
Better still, show them, if possible.
Be clear about just what you accomplished:
EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all;
a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper
agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't
subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in
was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s;
or whatever happened.
When you speak of state victories, name
the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax
agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!
If you're in a battle now, speak of your
resolve to uphold the law, come what may--
why you're not discouraged, and why you are not
standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and
not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand
that the company of grown-up activist Americans they
are being invited to join cuts across all demographics
and all interests-- with the common denominator being
respect for the law and love of the principles on which
this great country was founded.
This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.
We've all had frustrating occasions of
trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family
member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall
of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is
your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks
who have themselves decided that it's time for them
to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your
testimonial for exactly that reason.
Further, think about this: You want judges,
bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you
work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else
to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly.
How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?
You want these folks to learn the truth.
Why would they even recognize that there is a truth
to be learned if you won't attest to having learned
it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and
chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and
checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen
the government evasions and you know that the tax is
not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants
everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited
thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.
Again, if you have victories to show, that's
nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have
victories to display in order to declare your knowledge
of what the law says. I've never flown around the world,
but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments,
and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...
Even those of you who haven't yet studied
CtC have surely read
this short document, and have verified everything
in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring
its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again,
if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will
ever even bother to look at the facts?
Be the change you want to see in the world,
or there won't be any change.

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As
Falling Off A Bike
To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works,
try this little exercise:
Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob,
who lives down the street from you in a town that is
really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting,
deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking,
bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in
Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting
business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and
away the biggest business in town.
Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract
business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders
who have signed an agreement with him, or even just
those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time
anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd
combination of circumstances that took many years to
Here's how it happened...
Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather
of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started
out not only with a main location for his contract business--
he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around
town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the
more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone
could take and use one of these bikes, but they were
expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob
a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate
rent), periodically. The initial design of the form
was like this:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
At Bob's rental
rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______
I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these
occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's
true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to
miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up
the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around
handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms"
to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied
by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone
riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he
would sue the company involved-- said:
You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know
What You’re Fighting About
If you are having an argument
with the IRS or any other tax agency,
You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate
You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign
You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion
You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject
is never identified.
You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists
that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply--
even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect,
and CAN be corrected.

YOU Decide To "Let Someone Else Do It"?

I will do."

Doing A Little High-Payoff Math
IF EACH PERSON receiving this newsletter each week distributed as
few as 100 of any of
the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends,
neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in
the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans
suddenly introduced to the liberating truth about the tax!
Just like that! In one week!
C'mon, people, let's roll on this!
“Most of the important things in the
world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when
there seemed to be no hope at all.”
When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.
I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention
and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write
as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend
Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated
with, the text you are reading, follow it!
It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered
with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions
or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original
material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't
understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent
to the original text.
It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are
confident that they are familiar with language or references within
the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over
included links. I do it all the time, myself!
However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory
purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is
generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative
material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding
of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding
of the original page. (Links to
CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.

It never did and it never will. Find out just what any
people will quietly submit to and you have the exact

"Never must thou take up a false cry, or join hands
with the guilty by giving false witness in their favor. Never must
thou follow with the crowd in doing wrong, or be swayed by many
voices so as to give false judgment; even pity for the poor must
not sway thee when judgment is to be given."
